Pingo mydeskfriend is a little wireless robot that responds to voice commands, sing songs, and read aloud email messages, headlines, stock quotes, and weather reports. If this seems a bit familiar, that’s because you might be thinking of Nabaztag WiFi Smart Rabbit and the Violet Mir:ror. Pingo looks like a little more fun because he has motion sensors and is mobile and can roll around on your desk. This little friend costs about $150.
